  • Whether you’ve been with us for years or entering the District for the first time, we’re excited to welcome you to Naperville 203 for the 2018-2019 school year.


    A welcome back to school would not be complete without first touting some of our District achievements from last school year. The 2017-2018 school year was full of inspiring moments in and outside of the classroom.


    We continue to make progress on our Focus 2020 Blueprint Commitments including leading as a model for integrating Social Emotional Learning (SEL) into curriculum across the country and looking at the how to best use our school day at all levels.


    Naperville 203 continues to earn national rankings - named the Best School District in America by the National Council for Home Safety and Security, and ranked overall third in the state, the highest rated large unit district, by


    These accomplishments are due to our outstanding students and staff who continue to strive for success in and out of the classroom.  


    34 NCHS and NNHS seniors were named 2017 National Merit Scholarship finalists, and five seniors received the 2017-2018 National Hispanic Recognition Program Award.


    Our students and staff inspire me as compassionate community contributors. Many student groups raised money or items for schools, families, animals affected by the 2017 hurricanes.


    Both NCHS and NNHS students brought home the hardware! At NCHS the Boys Water Polo team and Flight Yearbook Staffer Megan Mehta earned the top titles in IHSA State Competitions. The Girls Cross Country, Boys Soccer, Girls Track and Field, Math Team, Ping Pong, and WYSE (Worldwide Youth in Science & Engineering) were all state champions for NNHS.  The Huskies Girls Cross Country Team also finished second in the nation at Nike Cross Nationals, and NCHS color guard member Emily Wilkinson was selected to perform at U.S. Army All-American Bowl.


    I look forward to an empowering 2018-2019 school year full of students owning their education and teachers supporting them along the way.


    A high-quality public education is a top priority of our community and remains a draw for families moving to the area. Thank you for your continued support and commitment to education and empowering our students.

Strategic Blueprint

  • District 203’s FOCUS 2020 Strategic Blueprint

    Posted by Superintendent Dan Bridges on 6/27/2014
    FOCUS 2020 is the strategic plan for comprehensive improvement between 2014 and 2020, designed in response to community feedback, best practice, and a vision for the future. Ultimately, this blueprint will advance the fulfillment of the district’s mission.
    FOCUS 2020’s foundation is the Future Focus Community Engagement process that occurred over the course of a year where hundreds of members from across the community provided feedback to the district leadership regarding areas such as facilities, finances, measuring student success, and programs of study. Learn more about Future Focus by clicking on the specific “Quick Link” to the left of this text.
    The Blueprint includes four “Strategic Focus” areas, namely to:
    1. Design and implement effective practices that promote learning experiences for all.
    2. Foster a high-performance culture focused on student learning.
    3. Steward resources effectively to promote student learning.
    4. Effective communication and community relations.
    Each Strategic Focus then establishes “Commitments.” These commitments are what the district leadership pledges to accomplish within a distinct timeframe. Each commitment then includes a detailed “Action Plan” which will be accessible by the public upon final draft.
    District administrators provided an update on Blueprint Commitments to the Board of Education at the July 27, 2015 meeting.  To watch that presentation, please click here
